My husband and I just returned from PV. The resort is older and does need some upgrading but it is super clean. We stayed on the 5th floor of the tower and the room was really nice (rice pudding is yummy). The view, spectacular. All the rooms face the ocean which is really nice. The food was good. Dinner on the beach was fantastic. There is no fridge or coffee maker in the room but coffee is always available in the 'Sweet Corner' in the lobby. Also available after 7am is amazing cappuchino. No the resort itself is not a 5 star, but the staff make it so. They treat everyone like they are family. They also work very hard to make your stay the best ever. Everything morning the guy that worked on the beach setting up the loungers, would set our group of 8 chairs up, complete with lounge cushions, tables and umbrellas. Your umbrella wasn't in the right place, they moved it for you. The other staff that worked the beach or in the hotel were also great. Employees that stuck out at the resort because they were so good at their jobs were Mary and Lou in the lobby bar, and of course Sergio (double double) and Johnny Lightening. Hard workers and great people.
Italian ala carte was good. Overall it was a really enjoyable stay. I can understand why so many people go back to Friendly year after year.
